Description: In Brighton, where restaurants are ten to the pound, it takes a lot to impress the locals. However, Lee Cottage has managed it. How? By combining an unpretentious classic Chinese restaurant interior with great Cantonese, Szechuan, Peking and Shanghai food cooked fresh to order. Lee Cottage works the classic red and gold interior combination with paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, fresh linen on the tables and classic Chinese artworks on the walls while friendly staff chat with customers as they flick through the long menu with its many choices. Lee Cottage offers several dining options, from a Sunday lunch through to a £15 choose-your-own set menu.

The pancake rolls and the mussels are fabulous, plus everything I have eaten there was delicious, eaten there many times lost count.

Had a takeaway twice for here now both times have been excellent. Food is good value for money. Delivery is always prompt and staff are very friendly on phone.

“Excellent selection of well-cooked Chinese favourites at an excellent price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2011

Have just come back from this fantastic little restaurant in the heart of Brighton's shopping & tourist areas. It doesn't look like much from the outside - you could almost walk past it - but once you're up the stairs and into the restaurant, the place is very welcoming and homely. The decor may be a little strained, but the food is outstanding.

For £15 a head, you can have as much as you like - and not in some buffet where the food goes cold. You order off the extensive menu, and every dish is cooked fresh to order. It includes all the classic Chinese dishes, and the management state on the menu that you can ask for anything else, and it includes 1/4, 1/2 and even whole ducks if you want them. The food is excellent - as good as any Chinese I've had anywhere.

Drink prices are reasonable, and service was polite and efficient. When we arrived, the restaurant was full (and with many Chinese students) while most others around the area were empty. They also offer an excellent value lunch.

Don't be put off by the decor - this is a friendly restaurant serving great food at reasonable prices.
